The heat is off. The fat lady has sung. The Trump-Russia investigation will soon be no more.
At least that is what we are lead to believe by Donald Trump after the release of the “explosive” Nunes memo.
Referring to himself in the third person, Trump tweeted yesterday:
This memo totally vindicates “Trump” in probe. But the Russian Witch Hunt goes on and on. Their was no Collusion and there was no Obstruction (the word now used because, after one year of looking endlessly and finding NOTHING, collusion is dead). This is an American disgrace!
Even Donald Jr. is breathing a sigh of relief!
“There is a little bit of sweet revenge in it for me and certainly probably the family in a sense that if they wouldn’t have done this, this stuff would be going on,” said Junior on Trump TV (also known as Fox News).
And boy will Junior (and anyone else caught up in the Mueller investigation) save money! He complained on Fox about the “millions in legal fees” he had to pay in connection with the Russia probe, the time he’s had to waste and “being smeared throughout the media for a year.”
Unfortunately, the only people who believe the partisan Nunes memo marks the end of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s probe are the Trumps and their diehard supporters.
The FBI, under the direction of Trump’s own appointee, Christopher Wray, issued the following statement regarding the infamous memo:
With regard to the House Intelligence Committee’s memorandum, the FBI was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to release it. As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.
Unless Trump uses the memo as an excuse to fire him, look for Mueller and his team to religiously plow forward in their search for the truth concerning Trump-Russia collusion and obstruction of justice.
At the very least, Trump and family had an enjoyable, albeit delusional, weekend.
